Demanding full farm loan waiver, BJP calls for voluntary State-wide bandh tomorrow

May 27, 2018

Mysuru: Demanding full farm loan waiver, the Opposition BJP has called for a State-wide bandh (except Bengaluru urban district) tomorrow.

Announcing this a press meet here this morning, City BJP President Dr. B.H. Manjunath said that before the elections, CM H.D. Kumaraswamy in JD(S) manifesto, had promise farm loan waiver within 24 hours of coming to power. But even after a couple of days of assuming power as CM, Kumaraswamy is yet to announce the farm loan waiver thus failing to keep ;his promise.

As such, the BJP State Unit Chief B.S. Yeddyurappa has called for a State-wide Bandh, except in Bengaluru, tomorrow to press the government for declaring loan waiver.

Seeking the co-operation of citizens for voluntary enforcement of bandh, Dr. Manjunath appealed all educational institutions, hotels and restaurants, business houses, commercial establishments, cinema halls, etc. to shut down from dawn to dusk in the interest of the farming community, which is in deep distress.

Continuing, he said the BJP will stage a massive protest at Gandhi Square at 10.30 am tomorrow as part of the bandh.

Reiterating BJP’s commitment for addressing agrarian issues, he said that the BJP would exert constant pressure on the Congress-JD(S) coalition government for full farm-loan waiver.

BJP local leaders Rajesh, Harsha, Maheshraje Urs and Hema Nandeesh were present.

Hotel Owners Association to extend moral support to bandh

Even as State BJP Chief B.S. Yeddyurappa has called for a State-wide bandh tomorrow to press the government for full farm loan waiver, the Mysuru Hotel Owners Association has extended its moral support to the bandh.

The Association President C. Narayana Gowda said that city hoteliers have voluntarily extended moral support to the dawn-to-dusk bandh.

However, no hotels and restaurants will be closed in the city tomorrow, as shutting down will lead to a lot of inconvenience to the tourists and other visitors, who have been thronging the city for the past few days, especially from neighbouring States.

    ಆಹಾರ ಸರಬರಾಜಿನ ಮೇಲೆ ನಮ್ಮ ನಿಯಂತ್ರಣ ದೇಶದರ ಕ್ಷೆಗಾಗಿ ಅತ್ಯವಶ್ಯಕ. ಆದರೆ ಇದಕ್ಕೆ ಪರಿಹಾರ ರೈತರ ಸಾಲ ಮನ್ನಾ ಖಂಡಿತಾ ಅಲ್ಲ. ಅವರಿಗೆ ಬೆಳೆಯಿಂದ ಲಾಭ ಏತಕ್ಕೆ ದಕ್ಕುತ್ತಿಲ್ಲ ಎಂದು ಕೂಲಂಕಶವಾಗಿ ಪರೀಕ್ಷಿಸಿ, ಇರುವ ತೊಡರುಗಳನ್ನು ಪರಿಹರಿಸ ಬೇಕು. ಸಾಲ ಮನ್ನಾದಿಂದ ದೇಶಕ್ಕೆ ಹಾನಿ. ರೈತರ ತೊಂದರೆಗಳು ಹಾಗೆ ಮುಂದುವರೆಯುತ್ತವೆ.

    Nowhere in the world they do bandh for petty reasons. It is not citizen friendly except for few tall politicians. Please find some constructive ways to sting the government.
